Immigrant Rights

Everyone deserves to live a safe and dignified life, no matter their birthplace or immigration status. We must fight for our immigrant communities’ rights to live without fear of harassment or deportation and access the same levels of social and care infrastructure as all New Yorkers.

Access to Social and Care Infrastructure

  • Pass Coverage for All (A3020) which will expand state-funded health care access to people who were previously denied due to immigration status.
  • Invest in the Unemployment Bridge Program (A4821) in order to provide critical income security to unemployed workers that the existing unemployment insurance system excludes.
  • Fight for all parents to receive childcare access and benefits, regardless of immigration status through the Working Families Tax Credit (A4022)
  • Expand local voting rights to non-citizens in the state

Here to Stay: Safe Communities for All

  • Protect immigrant communities from legal threats, family separation, and deportation through the New York for All Act (A5686), which will prohibit all local law enforcement and state agencies from calling Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) or Customs and Border Patrol (CBP).
  • Ensure a right to counsel for all immigrants facing deportation in New York by passing the Access to Representation Act (A170)
  • Expand language access statewide (A7235)
